Set on 100 acres in Midcoast Maine, Kingdom Road is a working farm with sheep, chicken, and hay harvesting during the warmer months. Offering a mix of ponds, streams, pastures, hay fields, abundant forestland, and a 200-year-old cemetery, the farm also abuts hundreds of acres of protected lands (Blue Hill Heritage Trust) with walking trails and easy parking. This area is a paradise for birders and nature enthusiasts, just 10 minutes away from the coastal village of Blue Hill and the well-known Bagaduce Lunch on the shores of the tidal Bagaduce River. There is much to do, so load up your gear, canoes, and kayaks and enjoy!
Originally built around the circa-1800 fireplace and bread oven, this true farmhouse provides all-around comfort for our guests. This farmhouse provides comfortable overnight lodging and a full kitchen for guests to prepare their own meals. The house has two floors, each with two bedrooms: one with twin beds and the other with a queen bed. All four bedrooms feature 10-inch cooling memory foam mattresses and private bathrooms. There is also a common area on each level, allowing those who are traveling together to have their own floor. A separate wing contains a full kitchen and a dining area, which can also serve as a great space for small meetings, seminars, and retreats.
The farmhouse is fully insulated and offers an individually controlled heating and cooling system in each bedroom for year-round comfort. There's even an old, well-tuned piano in the downstairs common area for musical noodling or a fun-filled family sing-along!
The interior of the building has been beautifully finished to pay homage to the historic nature of the house. Reclaimed barn boards from renovated outbuildings on the premises grace the farmhouse's walls as wainscoting, chair rails, and trim boards. The original posts and beams have been left exposed throughout the house and are augmented by new timber framing in the main entryway and common area downstairs.

This home is on a fully functioning farm with sheep and chickens. Guests can see, but not interact with, the animals. The farmer will be on the property occasionally to take care of the livestock, but he will not interact with guests nor have access to the home.
